This Pin it looked so promising. It looked like a blast. I thought my 8 month old baby would love the experience of slimy paint beneath his fingers, and love watching the colours change. But… he didn’t. It was a Pinterest Fail.
Mess Free Finger Painting just didn’t work for us.
The first time I failed. I don’t think I added enough paint in the bag for the slimy sense of paint. But it didn’t matter. Walter immediately saw me taping something on the floor and crawled like crazy over. He beat me to it. He starting grabbing the bag. Naturally, he tried to eat. I eventually wrestled the bag from him and taped it on the floor. No Longer Interested.
I created another bag of paint and paper. This time LOTS OF PAINT. I could draw shapes in the paint. This time. Still not interested. It just wasn’t going to work for us.
Have you tried this activity with your kids? Did it work?
